Although it is a great one, along with "crackberry," "carbon neutral," and "new way forward in Iraq" and "path to citizenship."
My latest column--on Christmas, terrorism and my mother's deep-seated need for therapy--is here. Merry Christmas!
My mom's Trailer Park Christmas Bisquik Sausage Balls recipe!
...one drunk, well-connected supporter at a time.
Boston University's Bob Zelnick says "yes."
What?! A 20-year-old smokin' hot American girl is...drinking alcohol? In public? And doing drugs, too? And--wait, this can't be right--she's SEXUALLY active!
It's "All-Trans Fat, All The Time" on the Michael Graham Experience today. Join me for an on-air Trans Fat Rave from 3-7pm today.
If you want to know why your Lefty neighbors keep trying to ban all your fun, liberal activist Chris Waldrop of the "Food Policy Institute is here to tell you why: It's the government's duty to make you eat your vegetables.
Developers are planning to build at least two condo communities in the Hub catering specifically to homosexual senior citizens. Some Boston politicians are scratching their heads over this, having tried to build condos specifically for local seniors, but had their plans shot down because they might violate Fair Housing laws.
Has to be Time magazine's Richard Stengel:
"If you choose an individual, you have to justify how that person affected millions of people," said Richard Stengel, who took over as Time's managing editor earlier this year. "But if you choose millions of people, you don't have to justify it to anyone."
At least, I think so...
Just interviewed Professor Dershowitz on the radio show. He gave the real story of Brandeis' invitation to Jimmy Carter to appear on campus and discuss the former president's new book "Chicken Soup For The Anti-Semitic Soul."
Seriously, if your son or daughter has received an "Honor Roll" letter from Needham High, or any of the other area schools who no longer publish their "honor" roll, please send the name, grade and school and I'll happily post them right here!
Today's winner--in a landslide--is Paul Richards, principal of Needham (MA) High School and the man responsible for taking the "honor" from the Honor Roll.
Not only did this four-year-old get suspended for "sexual harassment," he actually put the moves on a full-grown adult woman! That's a performance even a young William Jefferson Clinton would envy.
Another day, another whackjob Islamist trying to blow people up. This time, in Chicago, IL.
My, oh my, the Deval Patrick era is off to a glorious start. When they're not busy holding "marketing events" with Big Dig lobbyists or planning Gov.-elect Patrick's five-day-long, $1.8 million, most-expensive-ever inauguration party, Team Deval is busy shooting down various campaign promises.
Gov.-elect Deval Patrick's new budget chief said Thursday that local option taxes on meals, hotels and other services [Strike one!] should be one of the things the state considers as it seeks to create a stable long-term financial picture.Oh, and did I mention that Deval Patrick is thinking of killing the deal Massachusetts made with the feds to help catch illegal immigrants? And that he refuses to defend the state constitution from the legislature currently trashing the rule of law and denying 170,000 citizens their civil rights?
Leslie Kirwan also said she isn't sure she can find the $735 million in wasteful spending Patrick said he wanted to eliminate during this fall's gubernatorial campaign. [Strike two!]
At the same time, the outgoing financial official for the Massachusetts Port Authority said she isn't sure the state can cut property taxes, as Patrick said he hoped to do
when he said he opposed a rollback in the state income tax rate during this fall's gubernatorial campaign. [He's outta there!]
Andrew McCarthy has another terrific piece on why the ISG Student Council Report was so foolish to suggest serious negotiations with Iran and Syria. In his article, McCarthy points out that it's impossible to make an argument for negotiations with Iran/Syria that isn't also simultaneously an argument for negotiating with Hamas/Hezbollah.
Hezbollah: Murderers, terrorists, anti-semites...and friends of the Massachusetts Left. How can a liberal candidate for governor appear at a Hezbollah rally and not be challenged by the press? How can James Baker urge negotiations with terror-sponsors while they are committing terrorism and be cheered by the Boston Globe-Democrat?
Fresh from its 1979 siege of the U.S. embassy and the humiliating hostage-taking that ensued, the Islamic Republic of Iran... created Hezbollah in 1982. Primarily based in Lebanon, where American forces were massed to calm the bloody aftermath of Israel’s expulsion of Arafat’s PLO, the “Party of God” (Hizb Allah) claimed in its manifesto to be
"the vanguard … made victorious by God in Iran. There the vanguard succeeded to lay down the bases of a Muslim state which plays a central role in the world. We obey the orders of one leader, wise and just, that of our tutor and faqih (jurist) who fulfills all the necessary conditions: [Ayatollah] Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini. God save him!"
Over the quarter century that followed, Hezbollah received billions in aid from Iran, as well as aid, logistical support, and safe haven from Syria, with which it works hand-in-glove to strangle Lebanon and wage war against Israel... In April 1983, for example, a Hezbollah car bomb killed 63 people, including eight CIA officials, at the U.S. embassy in Beirut. More infamously, the organization six months later truck-bombed a military barracks in Beirut, murdering 241 United States Marines (and killing 58 French soldiers in a separate attack).
What prominent American politician were these voters discussing when they gave the following responses to Gallup?
"I'll flee the country as soon as the US leaves." That's the message of several members of the Iraqi military in reaction to the idea of abandoning Iraq to the Islamists, thugs and crooks who are fighting to control it:
The sergeant, dressed in a US Army shirt, bemoaned the intensifying government pressure. He feels that the Americans have taught his men to be a professional, non-sectarian force and political parties are undermining them.
“If we detain Sunni terrorists, many of the Sunnis working for the Government will keep pushing us and our battalion commanders and ask us why you do that. Sometimes they will make a complaint against us. If we do the same thing in Sadr City, they (Shia officials) will make an announcement on television that we are doing the wrong thing and killing innocent people.”
He criticised restrictions placed on troops by the Government which he says means that the Army cannot raid Sunni or Shia mosques being used by militant groups to kill people.
“If their mosque is a Sunni mosque, I can’t do anything about it. If it is a Shia mosque, I can’t do anything about it because the al-Mahdi Army will be mad,” the sergeant said. “I have learnt from the Americans that if there is a place where people are hiding weapons and terrorists even if it’s a place to pray then we do not consider it a place of God anymore.”
Watching James Baker and Lee Hamilton and the rest of the ISG oozing self-importance and slapping each other's backs, all I could think of was my high school student council.
So says the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the SCOTUS declined to review the case.
Mark Steyn is right, as usual:
John Podheretz says it all, including:
YES, it's been quite a week for the 10 members of the Iraq Study Group, the committee formed last spring to offer recommendations on a path forward in Iraq.
They had a wonderfully invigorating leak session the other day with The New York Times, which was the first recipient of the group's key top-level save-America recommendation.
Co-chairmen James "Is There An Arab Dictator Nearby Whose Butt I Can Kiss"
Baker and Lee "Yes, I'm Still Alive" Hamilton didn't even bother to pretend to
brief the president or key lawmakers first.
